On or Off?

Half way to work this morning amidst the second of two HUGE traffic jams, saw the motorway sign saying "Junction 30 exit slip closed". As this was my exit, I got off at 32 and went round the houses to get to work another way.

When I got there I realised that it wasn't the exit slip OFF the motorway that was closed but the slip from the roundabout ONTO the motorway.

Is it me or has the meaning for the word "exit" changed. I always thought you exited off a motorway or joined onto a motorway. Even my sat nav says "exit ahead" when I'm on the motorway. D'oh!
